1 Health Information Management Program Phone: (512) Office: Health Professions Building 220 Fax: (512) Web: Degree Program Offered BSHIM, major in Health Information Management Minor Offered Health Information Management The Bachelor of Science in Health Information Management with a major in Health Information Management degree program prepares students to work in the health information management profession which focuses on health care data and the management of health care information resources. The profession addresses the nature, structure, and translation of data into usable forms of information for the advancement of health and health care of individuals and populations. Health information management professionals collect, integrate, and analyze primary and secondary health care data, disseminate information and manage information resources, related to the research, planning, provision, and evaluation of health care services. The program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Health Informatics and Information Management Education. Upon completion of the degree, graduates of the program are eligible to sit for the RHIA (Registered Health Information Administrator) examination offered by the American Health Information Management Association. The BSHIM is offered in two formats the traditional campus-based program and a distance education program. The Traditional Campus-Based Program is a two plus two program with completion of general education core curriculum and program prerequisite coursework during the first two years. Following application and acceptance into the program, the final two years consists of the professional coursework reinforced with professional practice experience assignments in hospitals and other health care related facilities and organizations. Application deadline is March 1. The Distance Education Program is offered primarily for those who have already completed an associate degree in health information or other degree or have previous healthcare work experience. Academic advisement is required to determine eligibility and placement in this program. The courses for the program are offered via web-based instruction, independent study, and professional practice experience. Application deadline is March 1. Admission Process To apply to the HIM Program, students must: 1. have completed the majority of the Core and other prerequisite coursework; 2. have a minimum overall GPA of 2.25; 3. be eligible for admission to Texas State. (University application deadlines are different than the HIM Program deadline. Potential program applicants are encouraged to complete the University process early to facilitate review of transcripts during the HIM Program application process.); 4. submit HIM Program application by March 1 for consideration to begin the HIM coursework in the fall semester; and 5. interview with the HIM Program Admissions Committee with notification of acceptance communicated by April 1. It is strongly recommended that students present themselves for academic advising with an HIM program advisor as soon as health information management has been selected as a major. 287

2 288 Advanced standing in the health information management program will require a review of the student s credentials and previous coursework. Because of course sequencing and the scheduling of clinical assignments, students who drop out of the program for one or more semesters will be required to reapply for admission and be re-interviewed by the admissions committee. Students must make a C or higher in each HIM course to meet progression and graduation requirements. During the second semester of the senior year, students are required to take a five-week professional practice experience course. This course requires that the students spend a minimum of five weeks in other institutions (hospitals, health agencies, etc.) away from campus. Students must furnish their own transportation and housing. Because of the time and distances involved, no courses other than those listed can be taken in the final semester of the senior year. Liability Insurance 1. Students enrolled in the Health Information Management program are required to purchase liability insurance, or demonstrate proof that they have professional liability insurance. 2. Students may obtain information on liability insurance from the program office. Immunization Requirements It is a policy of the College of Health Professions that each student must provide a Health Report completed by a physician, and must take certain immunizations before the student can be placed in a clinical or internship assignment. Information on these requirements and forms to be supplied may be obtained through the program office. Background Checks and Drug Screening As a condition for placement in some professional practice sites, students may be required to have a background check and/or drug screening and meet other requirements set by individual sites. Information will be provided by program faculty. 4 Bachelor of Science in Health Information Management Major in Health Information Management Minimum required: semester hours General Requirements: 1.
